Linx Africa offers a comprehensive on-line tourist information
guide for South Africa, published on the Internet at www.linx.co.za.
This web site features directory listings of all types of tourism
related concerns. We publish information on accommodation facilities,
camp and caravanning facilities, all types of trails including
hiking, day walks, horse riding, river rafting, mountain biking,
and trails suitable for persons with disabilities. A guide
to tour operators, booking offices, travel agents and information
offices around South Africa is also available.
The Linx Africa website is unique in its provision of a comprehensive
on-line information service to the prospective tourist: we publish
information irrespective of whether or not providers of tourism
facilities and services advertise with us. We do, however, also
offer facility owners the opportunity to publish their own web
pages with us or link existing pages to our directories, thus adding
more information to the benefit of the Internet user.
3.1.1 Information on the web site is arranged per province, per
tourist region, alphabetically per town. Our web site offers multiple
entry points namely from our Index of Towns, provincial map, list
of provinces and Linx Africa hubs, i.e. AccommoLinx, CaraCamp Linx,
TrailLinx, AgentLinx and InfoLinx, Accommo PixLinx and Trail PixLinx.
Being primarily an information site, it is simple, easy to use,
and quick to download.
3.1.2 The web site structure follows an "open-book" format and
is not search-engine driven, although a search facility will be
added in the near future. This allows users to freely browse, save
to disk and print information as they need it. It furthermore allows
for extensive linking and cross-linking across web-pages and web-sites,
making it an invaluable source of information for the tourist.
